The Creative Arts Sampler class explores a variety of creative areas including stories, art, music, movement, and creative writing. Each session may focus on a different creative area but will incorporate other modalities in this interdisciplinary exploration of creative arts. Suitable for ages 5-9.

Scene Writing students will explore the structure of short scenes for the stage as they learn to write their own scripts or adapt known stories to a stage setting. In small groups students may be asked to come up with lines for a scene, figure out the staging, come up with simple costume & set ideas, and memorize their lines as they prepare for a final showcase performance. Suitable for ages 7-12.

The Dance Sampler classes explore a variety of dance styles throughout the session including ballet, jazz, improv, modern, contemporary, and musical theater. Age range depends, in part, of the style of dance but generally age 5 & up for ballet, jazz, & musical theater and age 8 & up for improv, modern, & contemporary.

This is perfect for the student who wants to get introduced to dance in a casual setting without the pressure of performances or recitals. There will be an optional end-of-session showcase demonstration.

The Teen Art Class will explore the elements of art and principles of design as students work with a variety of materials and explore art techniques. Students will have projects that they work on in class each week. In addition, high school students in particular will be encouraged to work on an Independent Art Project, completing a long-term assignment over the course of the session. Some of the work for this project will be done at home with regular input from the instructor. Suitable for ages 12 & up.

NOTE for High School Students:

Talk to us if you would like a course description, grades assigned, or an evaluation for this class for a high school transcript or college application. At least 2 sessions would need to be completed in order to earn credit. They do not need to be consecutive sessions.

Designed specifically for the high school visual artist who has plans to pursue art in college. Heather will help you navigate the requirements, help you choose and create pieces for your portfolio, and solidify your portfolio submission for college applications. Lessons will be scheduled at a mutually convenient time and can include consultations and time spent working on art projects.

This is an excellent opportunity for the visual art or dance student who wishes to focus on a specific area of interest or try something new. Lessons will be scheduled at a mutually convenient time and can be for a single student or up to 3 students in a small group. Suitable for for ages 8 & up.

 - Visual art: drawing, painting, digital art, art portfolio

 - Dance: ballet, jazz, improv, modern, contemporary, musical theater

A note from co-founder, Michele MacBeath:

Our family homeschooled our 3 children for 13 years, taking one all the way through high school, and I am thrilled that Total Arts! can assist families in their homeschool journey, particularly in the creative arts. 

Both Amy and I support homeschooling families in their desire to provide the best possible educational experiences for their children. We understand that homeschool families can vary greatly in terms of their educational philosophies & expectations, and in their styles of teaching. We are happy to work with your group to see if Total Arts! can help you reach educational goals within your chosen framework.

At Total Arts, it's all about the process!

Total Arts! has two spaces for group use.

The larger back room can be set up with tables & chairs (provided by Total Arts), or left empty.

The smaller front space can be used for smaller group activities, set up as an extra learning space, or function as a "hang-out" area for non-participating siblings and/or parents.

There are 2 direct-access single use restrooms in the larger room, one has a changing table.

We are fully wheelchair accessible.
